here are some pictures of the Benches that i made for the front of the house. in the before photo there was room for only one person and from the looks of them i chose to make new ones rather than chance sitting on the “Benches that came with the house.” Now there is ample room for two on each side, and I can assure you those benches will be around long after I am gone. They were made with a wood named “Greenheart” this wood is real rough on tools. It was treated with an outdoor poly.
Living in New York you have to make do with what little room you have.

Great idea for an otherwise wasted space.
